Leadership Competencies for the Future

Date: Monday – June 26, 2017
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. CDT
Presenter: Diane Bradley, Regional Clinical Officer


Summary and Objectives

The rapidly changing health care landscape that is facing new challenges requires a new generation of leaders who can make swift, innovative decisions. Breaking the traditional leadership model will require collaboration at all levels, creation of matrix reporting, demonstrating safe environments of care, utilizing data to support effective decision-making, maximizing value based care, ability to energize staff to improve quality care, and redesigning care models to support the lack of available talent. These are just some of the qualities that future leaders must possess. Join us for a rich discussion of future leader’s characteristics, and the impact on current thinking and the timeframe for change.

Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the differences between current competencies and those competencies needed for the future.
  • Define why the changing health care landscape requires changes in leader competencies.
  • Identify two ways that organizations can enhance current leader’s competencies in order to retain talent.
